The old town and the fortress are not to be missed. The people are very friendly and there are also some Italian restaurants, for those who want to eat more familiar food. There's also a shop that sells Sacher Torte from the Sacher Torte Cafe in Vienna, the one made with the original recipe. You mustn't forget to dress elegantly for a night at the theatre, it's absolutely fantastic.

It's a great little town, made for living as well as for tourism. It's surrounded by mountains, it's the home of Mozart, it's full of bakeries with Viennese pastries. It's on a human scale. You can get around quickly because it's well connected and you can visit the surrounding countryside and the castles in the area. It's a bit expensive, but just be careful, especially with food.

The month of September is for real connoisseurs. There are a lot of folkloristic autumn celebrations and the climate is temperate and fair. The old town is worth visiting, it has a lot of monuments and attractions, and around the lakes there are beautiful landscapes surrounded by mountains which you can reach by train or cable car.

It's a great little town to explore on foot. You should go to the airport to see the Red Bull Formula One car and little planes, the stronghold in the centre where they hold concerts and there's a great view. The cafes are very characteristic and you should buy "Mozartkugeln" (sweets).

It's nice to drive to Salzburg, park on the edge of town and then use a bike. You can get around freely and easily. You can combine culture and classical music with good food and shopping and the centre is very easy to reach.

Beautiful place. Lots of sights to see. Very clean, felt very safe. Great food and I'm a bit fussy about eating in other countries. Did not find it a costly place. Totally enjoyed my time there, cannot wait to return.

33 YEARS IN SALZBURG, it's beautiful, but it's expensive for tourists if you don't know where to go ... I RECOMMEND Lunch for 7-8 euro at the FINANZAMT (it's a great canteen and bar overlooking the pond in the park) 1km away from the centre, in the direction of AIGEN. Laschenskyhof (5km away) is very good. Take a tour of the lakes up to WOLLFANGSEE (80km) and continue 20km to HALLSTATT (gorgeous), GOSSAUSEE (wonderful).

Salzburg city is situated at the northern edge of the alps and it experiences typical Central European climate having hot summers with 40 degree Celsius and cold winters with – 20 degrees Celsius. Most of the year, the city has almost moderate weather conditions and one can plan his trip any time of the year. However, the crowds peak when there are any festivals or such events especially in the month of July, August and December.

In Salzburg you can visit the Fortress of Hohensalzburg which is over 900 years old is said to be one of the best preserved Medieval Fortress all over Europe. Another very famous building is the city’s most impressive church St. Sebastian, built in the Gothic style.
Salzburg is also the home of music. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg and lived here. Thanks to the keenness for music of the Archbishops, Salzburg was a common stop for musicians all over the world and fortunately this tradition has gone forward over the centuries. Today Salzburg is ... More still known for its annual Festival “Salzburger Festspiele” which offers a diversity of operas, concerts and theater plays.
Further the city is a popular place for musical and theatrical education and its schools are attended from many students all over the world.

The Austrian city of Salzburg has a population of about 150.000 inhabitants.
The birth of Salzburg dates back to the year 696 when the missionary St. Rubert arrived and founded the Benedictine Monastery of St. Peters. The city was an independent church state ruled by the Archbishop. The organization of the spiritual leader was Vatican-like and Salzburg was called the “Rome of the North”.
Salzburg is located between two mountains Kapuzinerberg and Mönchenberg and the River Salzach. The small alleys, the colorful town homes, the beautiful gardens ... More and the numerous castles, palaces, churches and monastery give to the city a picturesque taste.

If you have time to visit more than 2 attractions in the city (for example: the fortress, Mozart's birthplace and house) it's cheaper to buy a Salzburgcard that grants you entry to almost all the sights and public transport at a cost of 20 Euros for 24 hours.

There are beautiful landscapes and the city is beautiful and quaint, full of sights to see, starting from Mozart's house, where there is a museum. The historical centre is traditional-looking. Also worth seeing is the impressive castle, which you can get to by a cable car.
